Dr. Ben Carson
Dr. Carson was raised by his mother in a state of dire poverty. Young Dr. Carson was made to read two books from the local library each week. Even though his mother went to school only reaching the third grade and could not read, she asked her kids to write reports after reading every book. She would underline and check on lines, though she did not know what they meant. This helped Dr. Carson and his brother with their education. Dr. Carson says that his mother’s strong faith in God was a big influence on his faith. He asks God for wisdom and guidance and He grants it to him. Dr. Carson learned to depend on God, thanks to his mother. Today, Dr. Carson is one of the prominent people who take a stand for their faith and does not compromise on anything.
